INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE
IN ESG INVESTING
JEREMY GRANTHAM

WILL BE THIS YEAR'S
KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Now in its sixth year, CFA Society Boston's Annual Sustainable Investing Seminar has recognized that Sustainable Investing (SI) has been gradually moving into the mainstream. Designed to help mainstream professionals navigate approaches to SI and increased client demand, this yearly seminar brings together thought leaders, practitioners, and asset owners to provide practical advice and share experience-based examples and insights.

Please review Leslie P. Norton's The 20 Most Influential People in ESG Investing. As she states in the article, "Sustainable investing is only just entering the mainstream, and the leaders [included on the Top 20 Influential People in ESG Investing] have long believed this day would come." She also captures the sentiment that John Streur eloquently shared at our 4th annual seminar,
"The move toward transparency, toward creating metrics to measure the specific impacts companies have, and the ability to differentiate one firm from another, based on metrics
is a really important development. Helped by metrics, the companies we invest in
have road maps for improvement; 10 years ago, the ones addressing these
issues were few and far between."
We're thrilled to see that our seminars have featured 12 of the 20 most influential people in ESG investing, according to Barron's. Join us on November 28 as Jeremy Grantham shares his insights.
